Barcelona appear to be firming up their interest in Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic. 

According to a report from Spanish news outlet Marca, the La Liga giants sent Eric Abidal, their director of football, to observe the Europa League clash between the forward’s team and Inter Milan on Thursday evening. 

Jovic started for Adi Hutter’s men and helped them progress to the quarter-finals of the competition as he netted Frankfurt’s only goal in their 1-0 win at San Siro.
